Gaitri Pagrach-Chandra is the author of five books: Wrapped, Sugar & Spice, Het Nederlands Bakboek, Warm Bread and Honey Cake and Windmills in my Oven. Two of these have won major awards in the UK and in Holland. Of Indian ancestry, Gaitri was born and brought up in Guyana. She later studied in Canada and Spain and now lives in Holland with her Dutch husband. Her work reflects her colourful multi-cultural background as much as her passion for food and her insatiable curiosity about other cultures. When not researching, writing and travelling, Gaitri enjoys a fairly quiet life in the country, which includes reading, gardening, pottery-making and local affairs of various kinds. Reader participation and contact are welcomed, so do drop by her Facebook page and website to say hello.
